The Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect is open.
- China opens 568 stocks to foreign investors, and eases trade between Hong Kong and mainland China.
- Foreign investors and HNWIs to participate in China’s growth story.
The mid-cap companies available through the new corridor offer high net worth individuals/investors an opportunity to participate in China's growth story. The main sectors represented by the offering are consumer discretionary, consumer staples and industrials.
With China's hastening reforms and the turn towards domestic consumption, the new companies available for investment will certainly be vehicles for HNWIs moving forward.
On November 17, 2014, China opened the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, giving institutional and retail investors direct access to a whole new set of A- and H-shares.
The technological corridor provides access to 568 companies that were previously unavailable to institutional investors under strict Chinese regulation. Here is a list of those stocks.
